In April this year the Performing Arts Fund NL introduced a new programme for international promotional activities, carried out by Dutch Performing Arts. The programme offers offers Netherlands-based companies and ensembles the chance to develop and execute an international promotional plan, over the course of two years and with funding from the Performing Arts Fund NL. An independent committee selected eight organisations.
109 performing arts organisations expressed their interest in the programme. From these applicants an international independent committee selected twenty organisations, who were invited to submit a project plan. Eight of them were selected for a financial contribution:

Anoek Nuyens: € 50.000
Arno Schuitemaker: € 48.940
Katja Heitmann: € 33.340
Ensemble Klang: € 50.000
Naomi Velissariou: € 50.000
Slagwerk Den Haag: € 34.500
Strijbos & van Rijswijk: € 50.000
Tin Men & The Telephone: € 50.000

The budget available for this round is 400.000 Euros; the maximum contribution is 50.000 Euros for two years. The part of the budget that was not spent this round will be added to next year's budget. The programme will open for new applications in 2022.
